When Drivers Incorrectly Assume that Text Messages Will Not Wait
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that a driver traveling at an average speed of 55 mph who engages in texting removes their eyes from the road long enough to travel the length of a football field. Many drivers understand the dangers of texting while driving yet approach it from a “do as I say, not as I do” philosophy.
AAA reports that 78 percent of drivers surveyed by the association believe that texting behind the wheel is a real danger to other drivers. Despite this concern, 35 percent of respondents admitted to texting or sending an email while driving.
If another driver could not wait to send a text message until they were safely off the road and you suffered injuries because of this, we can help you.
Investigating and Determining Liability for Your Injuries
A police report can reveal valuable information concerning liability. Other motorists may help the investigation by providing law enforcement with eyewitness accounts of how the accident occurred. The party responsible for your injuries should pay for your damages. Pursuing a personal injury claim and a lawsuit against them is where a lawyer can help you.
Your Lawyer Will Handle the Case for You
From filing the necessary paperwork to insurance company negotiations to litigating your case in court, we fight for a fair resolution that covers the following types of damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical costs related to your hospital stay
- Continuous medical expenses associated with long-term or permanent injury
- Lost pay due to time spent in the hospital, a rehabilitation center, or at home recovering
- Loss of potential earnings and benefits
Civil cases require time and a dedicated focus to building—and presenting—the best case possible for compensation. The experienced team at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates will put together the strongest case possible and fight to obtain the best result on your behalf.
Hiring a Bronx texting while driving accident lawyer places your case in the hands of a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney. This knowledge is invaluable as you fight your way back from severe and often life-changing injuries. It is important to remember that holding the other person accountable for their reckless behavior may prevent them from texting and driving again while obtaining the compensation that you deserve.
Dansker & Aspromonte Associates Are Ready to Help You
A majority of personal injury cases never go to trial. While we will attempt to settle your case prior to trial we are always prepared and ready to present your case to a jury, if necessary. Sometimes, insurance companies do not like to hear that you hired an experienced attorney. The news might alert them that you will not accept an unfair offer and that you are protecting your best interests.
Hiring our services costs you nothing upfront. Not hiring an experienced attorney can cost you dearly. Never accept a settlement offer without consulting with a member of our team to guide you through the process. We require no money down and only collect our fee if and when we are successful in obtaining a monetary recovery in your case.
Let us negotiate for the type of settlement you deserve and if the negligent parties and their insurance companies refuse to offer fair compensation we will pursue an award at trial. Contact Dansker & Aspromonte Associates today to get started on your pursuit of compensation: (212) 732-2929.
When Another Person’s Texting Results in the Loss of Your Loved One
In the event of a tragic loss, we can work with you to recover damages.

A personal injury lawyer from our team can stand by your side from day one. By reviewing your relationship with the lost loved one, we can determine if you are entitled to pursue a wrongful death case. Your lawyer can also evaluate the non-economic damages that stem from your devastating loss.
